    The CEO appears to lack passion and direction. HR leadership is lacking.

    Pros

    Great Benefits for their employees which include Health Insurance, Life Insurance and 401K match. Company always has a company outing in which promotes and celebrates the employees.

    Cons

    The company has been going through a lot of executive management turnover during the last few years which is unsettling to the employees.

    Pros

    Great company, products and management. Great company cars, base pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Commission is not realistic. Base pay is essentially the year end take home pay. Good medical food product but trying to sell to mainstream western medical physicians is nearly impossible. Challenges with access of product and price point.

    Advice to Management

    Consider broadening the scope of physicians to those who are integrative.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. The company is also close to Baxter, which tends to be where the Enzon/sigma tau expatriates go.

    Cons

    The best of the employees (including the best of management) have left, with a few exceptions. I'll keep this short - the VPs need to be replaced. The company was much better managed when Enzon ran it under Mr. Del Campo.

    Advice to Management

    To Gaithersburg - Why do you think so many have left? It's no secret here in Indianapolis.

    Pros

    Benifits are awesome. Their drive to grow is strong. This manufacturing division was originally named Enzon Pharmaceuticals and was purchased by Sigma-Tau Pharmaceuticals in early 2010.

    Cons

    Unfortunately moral was becoming very weak. Employees had hope that Sigma-Tau could change the environment and bring managment around but we were wrong. Sigma-Tau made it clear to all employees and Senior Management they they would not interfere with how they operated, they only wanted the manufacturing devision to make them money. We were a facility that employed just over 100 employees. Since the purchase by Sigma-Tau, to date, close to 25 employees have left. These are employees with experience. If Sigma-Tau Pharmaceutifal doesn't intervine the Management of Sigma-Tau Pharmasource is going to run it in the ground.

    Advice to Management

    To: Sigma-Tau Pharmaceutical please listen to the non-management employees. They are upset and feel hopeless but they are not disgruntle. They just need to you to listen to how they are being treated by management. They need more employees. They need better pay. They need management not to act as dictators. To: Sigma-Tau Pharmasource Management, Resign. Your company is going down because you lie about your treatment to employees. The products are at risk because the experienced employees are leaving the product being made by employees with VERY little experience. Good luck to you.

    Opportunities for development of skills. Interesting culture. Developing focus in orphan development. Strong potential for success. Opportunities to perform multiple functions.

    Cons

    No Autonomy. Strong foreign managment influence. Inexperienced and often absent Senior Level Management. Pipeline in need of specific focus. Lack of internal US infrastructure. Strong allegiance to foreign managers. Often unrealistic expectations with little capital to support goals.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a more expereinced management team. Focus development on fewer goals. in-license carefully. Develop skill sets in clinical development in accord with programs being undertaken.
